Gopro Hero 6 sharpness issue, image really not sharp, video blurry compared to Hero 5 and Hero 4

I guys, I found that the Gopro hero 6 have some sharpness issue, the image quality compared to the Hero 5 and Hero 4 is really not clear, it's blurry and not sharp at all. 

 

Here is a video I found that show it well and compare the 3 camera : 

 

 

 

Is gopro aware of this issue ? 

 

Do you think the hero 6 sharpness can be / will be fixed in a future firmware update ?

 

I think, for the price we pay, we deserve a quality product and if this issue is not or can't be fixed, I will return my gopro.

 

Anybody else have a gopro hero 6 and a hero 5 or 4 that can compare ? I saw multiple videos, so Im pretty sure it's not a faulty camera exception.

Hi @samueld6408,

Re: Gopro Hero 6 sharpness issue, image really not sharp, video blurry compared to Hero 5 and Hero 4

hi @samueld6408....

 

the video was posted in Nov 5

the new firmware release date is Nov 20

 

so this comparison was made on the old firmware.

 

thank you!
